Breaking the fourth wall

Throughout our renovation works in the bedroom, there has been no wall between the room and the corridor, it being one of the first things we removed. For it to feel like a room again we needed that wall back.

We still had the stud wall framework

so with a bit of tightening up of all the joints and some cross braces to keep it square

and a trim of the floor to give us a straight edge for the room

we could screw the base piece to the floor

and screw the rest of the framework to that. With some celotex filling it all in it looked like a real wall!

It still needs extending up to, and attaching to, the ceiling

and then we can build in the door frame and continue the wall to the other wall.
